Yesterday over 1000 people gathered at the Royal Cornwall Showground, Wadebridge for the third Sensational Cycling Saturday - the festival of all things cycling. The weather was superb with sunshine and low wind speeds.

Events like these do not happen without detailed preparation and planning and without volunteers would not have happened at all. Thanks to everyone.

The first event of the day was a sponsored bike ride in aid of Children's Hospice South West where every participant received a medal and a certificate.

Our exhibitors made the exhibition hall a busy and attractive market place and was just the place to be to join a cycling club, learn more about Sustrans, the Cornwall Wildlife Trust, the Tour of Britain, see and find out more about electric cars with West End Motors or buy a bike or two from our bike retailers, The Wadebridge Bike Shop and Clive Mitchell Cycles.

If learning to ride was the thing for you, Cornwall Cycle Training instructors worked hard all day to develop more confident riders in a safe, traffic free environment. 

Irrespective of ability, preference of cycling mode or ambition the world of cycling appeals to everyone in one form or another. Cycling is a wonderful physical activity, even on on an e-bike. the feeling of being able to propel yourself under your own power, soaking in the atmosphere, admiring vistas or just pootling along having a natter with your pals, it just can't be beaten.

At SCS our aim is to cater for everyone, learn from the more senior cyclists, down to the youngsters there, assess everyone's  ideas and ambitions and basically "talk bikes".

Everyone enjoyed the thrills and spills of the British Cycling Registered races on the road course and the cycle-cross. Competitors aged from under 8 years to elite and all just as competitive as each other!

The RCS is the perfect venue in Cornwall to exhibit all those bikey things we love; it just can't be beaten. See you there 2019?
